Fall Blooming Daffodil & Photography Show
Continuing the innovation of last year’s Fall Forum in Indianapolis, Suzy Wert will chair the second Fall Blooming Daffodil Show in 2017. Download the Fall Daffodil Show Schedule to start planning and preparing your fall daffodil blooms. If you don’t have daffodil blooms to bring for the show, we are also planning our First Fall Photography Show. Download a Fall Photography Show Schedule and celebrate the daffodil by sharing your photographs with daffodil friends and participating in the first ever Fall Forum photography show and competition.

Educational Symposium
We have an awesome line-up of educational symposiums at Fall Forum 2017. Our Symposium topics are diverse and interesting and our speakers are extremely knowledgeable in their field of expertise. From Andrea Schepmann, Executive Director of the Krohn Conservatory, a nationally-recognized showcase of more than 3,500 plant species from all over the world, to Deb Zureick who will tell us about her experiences as Botanical Garden Manager of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. Rated by peer zoological parks as one of the best zoos in the nation, the Cincinnati Zoo continues to set the standard for conservation, education and preservation of wild animals and wild spaces. Additional Symposium details will be rendering in our next Fall Forum 2017 newsletter.

Bulb Auction & Exchange
Fall Forum 2017 does include an ADS Board meeting…but after our meeting the cash bar will be open and we will have the opportunity to let-off some steam and enjoy ourselves. The fun begins with the ADS Bulb Auction and our evening will wind down with a lively Bulb Exchange. Please refer to our September 21 Fall Forum newsletter for more details about the Bulb Auction and Exchange.

The 2017 Fall Forum weekend is designed to maximize the education and entertainment of members and minimize the cost to be inclusive. We hope the Fall Forum can be a way for ADS to stay better connected with its members throughout the year.

We hope to see you in Cincinnati during the Fall of 2017!
